About

Footy for Tots provides football sessions for children aged 18 months – 7 years old. We provide a fun and safe environment for children to begin their love for football while developing key movement and social skills along the way.

For our Tots who aren’t in Full Time school we run sessions in 3 different age groups (Little Boots, Big Boots & Mixed Boots). All our sessions have a major focus on practicing our SUPER SKILLS such as Little Kicks (Dribbling), Big Kicks (Running with the ball), Squashing the ball (Ball Control), Fast Tippy Toes (Movement) & lots more!

We currently run sessions in Maidstone & Sittingbourne. Our current venues are located in Bearsted, Detling, Barming, , East Farleigh, Coxheath & Bapchild . For more information about our current venues click here or visit our venues page.

For our Bigger kids who are in Reception and Year 1, we run our Mini-Soccer sessions. These sessions take place on Saturday mornings at Roseacre Junior School in partnership with Roseacre Raiders FC. This is a unique link that offers our players a pathway to be part of a team at U7s.

Our session prices & term dates can be found on our Session Information page.

We also offer football themed parties for children 5 years +. Check out our football parties page for more information.

Coach Tom is an FA Licensed level 2 football coach with experience working with children of all ages. After finishing University in Wales, where he studied football coaching & performance, Coach Tom spent 2 years working abroad as an activities leader in a holiday village and upon his return has been working in a local primary school, primarily in the Early Years Foundation Stage. Since his return to football coaching Coach Tom has been regularly coaching players of all ages within youth football and really enjoys the younger age groups as there’s more emphasis on fun and participation. He enjoys witnessing the power football can have on a young child’s self confidence.

In 2017 Coach Tom decided to take the leap and bring his idea of Footy for Tots to life. He wants to give young children the opportunity to fall in love the beautiful game just like he did many years ago, while also developing key social & physical skills through fun active play.

And now the idea has become a reality as Footy for Tots is born!
